Default well we've decidied

The wife and I have decided to buy 2-3 more bonnevilles.she has a 94 and i have a 97 so we have been thinking a 95-96 and possibly a 98.Yes i know its weird odd and has no logic behind it.sense i was younger when i first fell in love with bonnevilles i had the dream to get one then eventually a ''fleet'' of them and now that i have the financial ability i think i am going to do so.I am not spending any more than 1800 on a 95 but on a 96 and a 98 i will go up to 3 grand each.I do not know why i felt the need to post this but now you all know what i thought about in bed last night.(well one of the things)

Oh its quite normal buddy. Don't worry, you're not alone. We had guys over on w-body.com who owned 5-8 w-bodies. One guy, Ken, had 8 cutlass supremes...or was it 9? I forget. I know he still has at least 6.

A lot of people generally have 3 w-bodies, one as a project car, one as a daily commuter, and one as a winter beater. Amusingly, they serve each purpose very well.

well i had that wrecked 98 se as a parts car and it ran amazing but there was no fixing the body but i had somebody ask me "well what if your wife leaves you" my answer was simple pre numptual agreement but i do not for see that happening.anyways thats kind of the idea but i want them all to be nice cars i dont need a winter beater as i drive my truck in the winter its just i have a big pole barn thats kind of empty in a way and i figure sense i am at the point in my life where i am a business owner and i do luckily have the finanical ability and security to do so i figure why not i think it will be interesting the thought has crossed my mind and i need input on this.sense the two bonnes i have are white should i make it so i have five white bonnevilles or get the others in diffrent colors i cannot decide

I plan to do the same thing eventually but instead of with any one model, I want a collection of several different Pontiacs

I barely have the money to keep one Bonneville. Don't forget to save some money for your eventual garage expansion.

i dont see how parts are hard to find for a 95 as theyre interchangable with 92-95 and some parts 96-99 and also alot of other cars but maybe your speaking of a specific part and besides if i ever need parts or help i have you guys
